/m68489 we had one say they where going to call in sick to take their kid to Disneyland. Right one the work room floor. Everyone heard him and sure enough he did. During the I.I. The PM asked him why did you call in sick? He said plain as day. I went to Disneyland. Nothing happened to him! No LOW no nothing. lol

After I got out of the Army I did casual for 3 different years at 180 days each. When I got the career appointment I got credit for 3 years service.

I was OFFERED the job, right out of high school, but I turned it down. At the time, there was still a Labor Shortage because of the Vietnam War. When I got the Letter, I was offered (choose one): Career City Carrier, Route 001, uniform allowance on first day...and Career Window Clerk position, uptown (the other direction), once again: Uniform Allowance, etc. - but I turned it down, when I found out how much it paid. A decision I regret, to this day. But back then, that decision made sense. I was working with UPS as a Loader on the midnight shift, for $5.00 per hour. Grown men with houses and families hardly made that much, back then. It wasn't until five years later, that I was offered PTF, Career, City Carrier again. This time, I had the 90-day Probation...the full shot. I do not know if there were Casuals, back when I was offered the job the first time. I thought they were referred to as: 'Christmas Help'.

Nobody started a career as a casual, they worked as a casual and took a test in order to start a career. And the high scorer on the test got the career no matter what a PM wanted to say about the work ethics of his former casuals.

/m68491 Thus, goeth the Grind. As long as you knew where to draw the Line...or they'd have you running, jumping over hedges and skipping lunch. Nuh-uh. Not me. I knew one guy who did exactly that. He didn't finish his career. Broke his leg while running and jumping. Nice guy - helluva nice guy. But very unwise.

Why shouldn't a CCA quit the service told them they they are not career employee when hired so they are not protecting a career.
